    A dream come true for poor Sikh families

    The Hindu : Cities / Hyderabad : A dream come true for poor Sikh families

    It was a dream come true for 53-year-old Babu Singh Granthi on Sunday. His son Karnal Singh's marriage was conducted in a grand manner in the presence of over 25,000 Sikhs and religious heads at the Gurudwara Saheb Baram Bala, Kishanbagh.

    The guests were served with delicious food and all this was organised free of cost.

    “With my financial constraints, performing my son's marriage in such a grand manner was beyond my limits. I am happy and thankful to the Gurudwara Saheb Baram Bala,” said Mr. Singh.

    The Prabandhak Committee Gurudwara Saheb Baram Bala organised mass marriages for economically poor 21 Sikh couples.

    The committee made all the arrangements, including accommodation, guru-ka-langar (breakfast, lunch etc) for two days for family members of the bride and bridegroom, said committee president S. Harban Singh.
    The marriages were performed in a befitting manner and ceremonies like Sagai were conducted on Saturday and ‘Lawan Phere' (solemnising of marriages) on Sunday.

    Home Minister P. Sabitha Indra Reddy graced the occasion and handed over cheques worth Rs. 15,000 each to the couple under the Minorities Welfare Department scheme.

    All good social and reform work being done by Sikhs is outside Punjab. If anything at all is there in Punjab, it is only tokenism. Even organisations such as Pingalwara founded by Bhagat Puran Singh and Khalsa Orphanage started by Bhai Vir Singh are wearing down their robustness and enthusiasm.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
